The Omaha City Council Tuesday approved a Tax Increment Financing redevelopment project plan to allow for a new full-service Walmart store at 50th and Ames.
The store will be approximately 184,000 square feet, including an outdoor garden center, and feature everyday household items, electronics, apparel and a pharmacy, as well as a full line of groceries with fresh produce, meat and dairy products, a bakery and deli.
The new Walmart will be a part of the shopping center on the northwest corner of 50th & Ames Streets. The new Walmart will replace the old Baker’s Supermarket and the existing Family Dollar Store.
“Our store is perfect for this community by providing a one-stop shopping destination where Omaha customers can find familiar brands and fresh and affordable food choices at a great value,” said Jim Canney, regional general manager for Walmart stores in Omaha.
